I'm trying to build a vm of my system from my system.(host is Vista Business 64-Bit..  Im running vmware 6.0.4.

I'm going to file --> import --> source type physical computer --> physical machine --> this local machine (I am not part of a domain... under authentication is office\myusername, but it's greyed out, so I can't change that).

When I push next, I'm getting 'unable to determine guest operating system'

I checked to make sure there weren't any locks on the file, but the problem remains.. :(

Had you tried to use this converter. On VMWARE forums they solved by using it
